Lodgepower Ltd v Taylor: CA 22 Oct 2004

The claimant was a tenant of agricultural land. He sought repairs, and served a notice on the executors of the now deceased landlord, but only later were letters of administration granted to the defendants. The judge had found the service of the notice good, because he had no notice of whom the notice could be served upon.
Held: It was impossible to serve a notice on someone who was a former agent of a former landlord.
